VOLUME XXI. Records Compared. The Sparks last week, in an effort to offset the Register’s comparison of the records of the county admin istration under the two parties, pub lished some iigures which are a splendid tribute to the economy of the republican boards. They show ed that in the live years from 1901 to 1905 the republicans Hpent several thousand dollars less from the road fund than the democrats did in the live years from 1890 to 1900, al though it must be remembered the population and needs of the county had more tbau doubled in live years. In order to make a showing the Sparks then adds the amount of the special bridge fund of the past live years to the republican total and makes it $20,000 higher than the democratic total. Now this special bridge fund is not a creation of the republican board as the Sparks tries to make it appear, but was caused by the building of the Granada bridge, which was ordered by a democratic board, and they having no money to pay for it confessed judgment before the district court, and were ordered by the judge to levy a certain amount of tax each year until the amount sued for was paid oil' with interest. The rebublicau boards could do nothing but levy this tax. and could not spend the money for any other purpose than that which the court ordered, so it wus nevor a part of the road fund. The bridge was a necessity and the republicans are too fair to charge any extrava gance to the democrats in building it, but it is a willful misrepresenta tion on the part of the Sparks to oharge it as any part of the road fund spent by the republican boards. In spite of the lesser amount of money raised in the last frve years and the fact that the taxes of the . Santa Fe for this year are not yet ,paid, the funds are all nearer paid .up than they have been in ten years, ;and the railroad tax would bring imost of then down to date. Vote for S. O. Gregory and a con tinuation of this fair and economical handling of county business. The Prosperity Ticket. Just one week remains in which the voters may do their thinking- up on parties and candidates for the coming election. Undoubtedly, nearly all of the men and women of Colorado have made up their minds as to how they will oast their bal lots. But to those who are still unde eided, The Evening Telegraph of fers these facts for consideration: Republican rule in Colorado has ever been synonymous with prosper ity, just as it has been for the last two years during the administration of Governor McDonald. The public business has been administered faith fully and economically; deficits have been cut down; bills have been col lected, which democratic administra tions have permitted to run for years; the insurance companies of the state | have been more carefully examined in the people’s interests than has ever been known before; and there has been peace and contentment everywhere. It is hardly necessary to say that the republican campaign this year is one which appeals to the people. In stead of endeavoring to besmirch the state and its courts, to revive old hatreds and prejudices, or to inflame class against class, the republican party has pointed with confidence to its good record in the past and has hailed the outlook of promise for the future. It is, therefore, as The Evening Telegraph sees it, for the best inte rest of every citizen of this state to to vote the republican ticket. It means money in the pocket of every voter, be he wage earner, merchant or capitalist. Peace and content ment means business for everybody. Therefore in voting for the republi ticket, the oitizen is voting for him self. The democracy offers no such pro j gram as this. They want votes to themselves and their boss- They ask for ballots, not be cause* it will bring business and con tentment and prosperity to the state, \ but because it will gratify them per sonally to beat this or that republi can. Their campaign is a campaign , of grudges, grudges against the The Lamar Register 0 “I McLEAN BROS.

Let every voter think the matter over seriously this week, if he has not already doue so, and decide that he will not trail under the banner of discontent, but will keep step with the party of progress, which is doing its level best to make Colorado a strong, happy and prosperous com monwealth. —Colorado Springs Tele graph. That Lubers Fake. Lubers, the Las Animas freak, who came down here to make a speech for Lindsey becanse he said he had tried to get back into the good giaces of Patterson and failed, so had to laud somewhere, published a letter in last week’s Sparks accus ing Senator Woods of trying to se cure legislation in opposition to the interests of the Arkansas valley. The facts iu the matter are that the bill was introduced at the request of farmers of Huerfano county, whose seuator had been tired out of the senate at the instigation of Alva Adams. As soon as Seuator Wood learned that it would work injury to our people he withdrew it before it ever got out of the hands of the committee. That was four years ago. Two years later asimilar bill pass the house and was killed in the sen ate through the determined work of Senators Wood and Drake. Senator Wood has been an earnest worker for the interests of this valley ever since he has been our senator, and he is deserving of the support of our people. A Democratic Lie Nailed. Senator Patterson and the demo cratic state press, which, parrot trained, reiterates the campaign lies promulgated by his Denver Yellows, have been busy circulating the false hood that the famous Prosperity Special, on which Chancellor Buch tel and the republican state candi dates have been touring the state, has been paid for by the railways. This is an absurd lie, for it has al ready been announced by Chairman Vivian that he contracted with the different railways for this special at the regular mileage rate, and paid in cash for the service on some roads before it was performed. The re publican party is under no obliga- 1 tions to the railways for this train and it is paying its way as it goes. Alva Adams is backed by at least two railways, one of which he sup- ' ported in its fight for a railway trust law making mergers possible in this this state. It is by the means of 1 such lies as this that the Patterson party is trying to keep the public 1 mind away from the fact of Adams’ I infamous railway alliances. Another Democratic Confession.

OCTOBER 31. 1906. which attack Judge Ben Lindsey, be . made the following confession of democratic villainy in his Leadville > speech last week: ' ‘‘Democratic election thieves stole the election of sixteen state repre sentatives in 1902, who elected i Henry M. Teller to the Senate by one vote. That election was stolen and if there is a democrat here who will deny that Teller’s seat was stol en from the republicans, let him stand up and we will fight it out right here.” No oue stood up. Ttie same gang that Liudsey says stole the electsou that sent Teller to the Senate also stole absolutely the election that made Lindsey county ; judge the year before. It is the same gang that stole the election for Alva Adams and the same gang that would steal the coimug election in Denver if it were not for the fact that the republicans put them out of business. A vote for Lindsey is a vote to re turn to the same old conditions in Denver. The Election. Before another issue of the Regis • the election will huve been held and the result known. The time for ar -1 gurnent is about passed and the is sue is now up to the voters to decide 1 in their booths on election day. Matters of great importance are to be decided in the next two years in this uation for good or evil, and it is of the utmost importance that Colorado should send to Washing ton representatives and a seuator who will sustain President Roose velt iu his greet fight for a square deal for the people. He himself has said very emphatically that the work can only be carried on successfully if he has a republican congress back of him, and here in Colorado where each voter casts a ballot for two con gressmen instead of one, it should be the aim of each republican to turn out and assist in carrying on E this fight. ? In state matters the old issue of I trouble and disorder against peace I and prosperity has been raised by I Patterson to aid his own selfish ends I and nothiug but a decisive defeat for his campaign of slander and trouble breeding will enable the 1 state to continue iu its present pros- 1 perous condition. Don’t waste a 1 ballot on side issues or independent * candidates, vote for Buchtel and the * republican state ticket. * The local campaign has been oue f of the cleanest and most good natur- I ed that has ever been conducted in I Prowers county. The republican 1 ticket is made np of men of charac ter and ability, who are amply qual- l itied to discharge the duties of the 1 offices they seek, aud there is no good excuse why any republican , voter should soratch them. ] Election Returns.
